Church of St Matthias, Wordsworth Road, Stoke Newington N16 - Hackney

The church was completed in 1851 to an innovative design by William Butterfield in free Gothic style. Stock brick with Bath stone dressings. Repairs to the nave roof and rainwater goods were completed in May 2015 with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic England. Another phase of work is required to the aisle roofs, as well as the roofs, belfry louvers and masonry of the tower. The church is seeking funding for project development and repair.
